She has been a private citizen for 4 years. If and when she is back in some sort of government office then it’s a different story.

 

This is so obtuse

Your problem is that you are totally irrational in your insistence of holding possible future Democratic office holders to some unrealistic standard.
 

Also that you are inherently assuming that stock ownership is a moral failure. The fact that Rice and her husband currently own stock in a company today doesn’t mean she is going to work to benefit that company later. Should she own that stock if she becomes VP? No, she should not. But right now she is not even a candidate for anything much less preparing to take office.

 

Elected officials need to be held to a higher standard when it comes to financial conflicts of interest. Private citizens don’t.

It's not unrealistic to want a VP who doesn't have tens of millions of dollars in fossil fuel investments. That is not an impossible standard.

She was a prominent member of the Obama administration at the same time as she owned all this stock.

 

It's not irrational to judge a private citizen who is vying to be a heartbeat away from the presidency by their choices.

Most people - especially wealthy people have their portfolio managed for them. They also don’t check every decision with their client - bc they’re being paid to remove that burden. 
 

I’m fine with a law banning law makers and a certain level of executives from owning stock .. but until it’s illegal - I’m faulting them for them
